Abstract:The US drive for clean, renewable domestic energy sources, and the municipal wastewater treatment sector's need to upgrade essential infrastructure cost-effectively, are converging in the area of anaerobic digester gas (biogas)-fueled combined heat and power (CHP) systems. Due to the economic, energy and environmental benefits of CHP systems, federal and state agencies are actively working to support increasing deployment of these systems through research, outreach, and various incentive mechanisms.
